Last weekend we went into town to the See New England Festival. It's all about New England travel and businesses, but we went for the music and free foods.
Here's the penguin from this Santa's Village place. You push its button and it talks to you.
I got to meet Wally. I thought it was going to be WALL-E.
Enjoying some of the giveaways: rice chips and green lobstah
Another fun giveaway: burial ground coloring map!
Aki liked the giveaways too. Here she is enjoying some Cape Cod potato chips. She usually doesn't get the whole bag, so here she is figuring it out:
Step 1: Open bag
Step 2: Inspect contents
Step 3: Ooh. Chips inside. Get some.
Step 4: Mission accomplished. Chip in hand. Bag no longer needed.
Aki made a friend during the concert.
Actually this girl didn't have too much sense of "personal space." Here she is stroking Aki's cheek.
Then she lifted Aki up and offered her to this giant fox. Aki was ok with it.
After the concert, our ears were ringing so we went to the big Boston Common park to rest. Aki napped and I went into the playground.
Me and my favorite statue in the playground
Ok, that's better
They have a merry-go-round too! I wanted to ride the chicken but I was too late.
After a stroll through the Public Garden, it was time to go home.
Being outside on Boston summer weekends are so much more fun than in the winter!
